Couldn’t Let It Pass

Can you even believe that I wrote up all of this morning’s post without even acknowledging the fact that today is 12/12/12?!? I mean, I’m sure you’ve already heard it about 12,120 times today (bahaha) but you guys know how I am with numbers so I couldn’t let it pass by without giving it a shout out.


So today has been a pretty busy one; I was out the door fairly early for a dentist appointment (no cavities, woop!), which was followed up with a couple errands, and then some work back here at home.

Before leaving the house this morning, I put together a little breakfast of champions


Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Kellogg’s Smart Start (actually from the container I had leftover from when I visited Reebok last month – random, right?), banana slices, chia seeds (<—FYI: if you use my coupon code SAZ564 at, you can get the whole bag for less than $5!), and unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

Fast-forward a few hours (and an unphotographed mid-morning banana) later, and it was lunch time.


I was feeling totally indecisive but then I happened to spot the last piece of leftover chicken in the fridge and decided to use it up.

So I made a chicken, provolone, and spinach sandwich on whole wheat bread…


…and it totally knocked my socks off.

Shortly after lunch I also managed to get in some extra reps for my Closeout Workout Challenge (100 of them, to be exact!) and even tried out my new Reebok top.

(No, I didn’t work out in the jeans, juuuuust in case you were wondering.)

Hey, how’d Reebok know my favorite color is purple? I’m really loooooving the top! I wasn’t totally sure about it upon taking it out of the box (it just looked sort of plain) but I really like it on. Super comfy, nice stretchy fabric, and well, it’s purple. Winking smile

It’s not up on the Reebok site yet, but I believe it will be later this month, so be on the lookout!

How’s everyone’s Wednesday going so far?? Doing anything fun today?

      I used to only get the blue box (brown sugar, I think?) but am now eating the honey nut and they are just as good! Love ’em both :)

      Mostly just breakfast items for me, although I have sprinkled them in salads before. I know many other people like to use them to make chia pudding and other jellies, but I’ve never attempted that…yet. 😉

        Sorry to butt in, but what are the benefits that you’ve seen from chia seeds? I heard that they are poison when broken open, similar to apple seeds, containing aresnic. I used to toss them into my smoothies, but then when I heard that, I stopped. Have you heard anything more definite?

        • Courtney says

          I’ve honestly never heard anything like that about chia seeds. I just tend to use them for their nutritional benefits (omega-3’s, etc.)

            Okay, thanks! After posting my question, I started googling it and can’t seem to find anything like that anymore. Hmmm. I guess it’s time to incorporate those back into my smoothies, eh? 😉 If I’m able to find it again, though, I will be sure to share the info with ya.

    Happy Wednesday to you! Hooray for no cavities. I am always so relieved to come out of the dentist without having to have scheduled another appointment right away! Yay for you!
    My Wednesday is so far so good. I signed up for my first ever half marathon today! Eeeek!

    I was pretty excited when I found out it was 12/12/12. Such a special day, especially since there won’t be another one!! I’m number obsessed too. That’s a cute shirt, I like the purple color!

      I’m not loyal to any particular brand…I have a few that I go back and forth with, and usually go with whatever is on sale. :)
      I think this particular loaf is somewhat of a local brand, Freihofer’s.
